Black Desert is coming to next gen, but not now
G-Star 2013, the largest South Korean gaming convention, just wrapped up and Pearl Abyss’ Black Desert was certainly one of the highlights. Our friends at 2P.com interviewed Project Manager Ham Young-Chul about the game, and the most interesting tidbit of information was about console releases.
We have the plan but we haven’t started to develop the game’s console version.
Apparently, they are planning to bring Black Desert on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One (the only platforms capable enough), but development hasn’t even started yet, so it will be quite a while before this actually happens. Then again, even the PC release of Black Desert in Western countries won’t happen before 2015, so the porting on next-gen consoles might be almost done by that point.
